English (Translate this text in English): Named after the rock steps formed naturally on the shore, this site is best accessed by boat from Ft. Liberte but can also be accesses by road. About 20 meters from the turn off to Ft. Liberte from the main highway is a dirt road going East. Take this road and at every crossroads take a right to stay close to the edge of the bay. This will eventually take you to Fort Labouque. From Ft. Labouque, Rock Steps is a considerable walk along the shore.

The entry from shore is over a rocky bottom with sea urchins and one must take care in walking over the rocks. It is doable but hiring a boat is the safest method.

 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): Rock Steps has a good number of hard corals including acropora and brain. One can also find very large barrel sponges at this site. Where many sites in Haiti are sadly lacking in fish, this site is visited by schools of fish.

There is often presence of a long shore current and having a boat there to allow for a leisurely drift dive is the best way to go.
